The entries in that top 10 list of yours are rather questionable

Why is each one on a separate page? Why not just list them all on one page, eg. for ergonomic reasons?
Most sites that do this as a method of forcing more ads onto the user and for no other reason. Since there don't seem to be any ads there, I can't see the point of doing it this way.
Anyway I eventually looked at all 10 of the pages and every game in that list is crap, except Elite and (to an extent) Pirates. (Pirates being in general a good game but the NES conversion is a bit rubbish.) Whereas the few good NES games (eg. Skate or Die) seem to be omitted in favour of low-quality Jap crap.

Top 10's usually are I've played a lot of NES games though and these to me are the best.

Well that's an opinion

I've even added a Twitter feed for the site. I feel like I'm dabbling with things from the far off future

Been awhile since I've posted an update for the site so thought I'd mention a couple. Just added some reviews, first we have Snake Rattle 'n' Roll

http://www.nes-bit.com/?p=3539

And Alien 3:

http://www.nes-bit.com/?p=3538

Finally I've stepped up in the world of web technology and created a Twitter feed. Will be keeping this up to date with stuff for the sites and random NES tidbits so worth signing up for:

None of those games is any good, but there are far worse than those on that platform.

Time for an update! Happy to say I have posted my first ever interview. Had a chat with Ste Pickford of Rare and Zippo Games fame, who spent sometime talking about his time in the games industry (with a hefty bit of NES related history of course!) and his upcoming game:

Well its been awhile since I posted an update but have plenty more content to show off :P First up is a review of Street Gangs or River City Ransom in the US, quite a little gem to find:

http://www.nes-bit.com/?p=4429

Next is me working my way through Nintendo's clash with the education market. Is it a game or just a bad idea?

http://www.nes-bit.com/?p=4451

I've also posted a few updates to the magazine section, nearing a full set of Club Nintendo now and I have the most complete set available! As always I'll be posting a lot more as time goes on so please bookmark the site and keep an eye on it. And to top things off I recently updated the database page with a few snazzy icons, lot better than plain old text:

Street Gangs is an amazing game, it and Double Dragon 2 are by far my favourites on the NES

Proud to say we have a major plus to the site today, a developer interview with Sivak Games. The guys behind the home brew release Battle Kid and a few tid bits on it's sequel. Also take a deeper look into what's involved in programming for the NES:
